Grace the Pirate

Grace Pirate icon HIRES

England - 1601  Grace the Pirate reveals the more whimsical aspects of pirate life.  From the beginning, Grace O'Malley establishes her student crew and the rules for sailing aboard her vessel.  With the aide of her newly 'recruited' quartermaster, boatswain and crew, Grace sets off with map in hand to find the treasure of Blackbeard the Pirate.  Once at sea, she entertains her crew with one of their favorite folktales.  However, the crew hasn't sailed for long before the dreaded Blackbeard appears.  A friendly struggle of wits, dancing skills and athletic competitions ensues to determine who shall win the treasure map.  The two mighty pirates finally agree to work together to find the treasure and the booty is shared by all.  (Each student receives a token of treasure.)

Grace O'Malley - The character is based on the historical Irish pirate, Grace O'Malley, that sailed during the Elizabethan period.  She is feisty, strong-willed and fearless.  Bedecked in her Elizabethan vest, skirt, knickers, boots and hat, she is a true swashbuckler from the 17th century.
